    Is there an online option for WP app within CA since no flagpoling allowed?

    Thanks for the reply. So by online, you mean through the Canadian Embassy in their country (Bolivia)? My concern is that if they are called to an in-person interview, they can't get there (until their border opens, not sure when that will be)

    Do we have to show student plans to leave Canada after visa?

    I'm wondering if, when applying for a Temporary Visa to study in Canada, if we will have to show the visa officer that the applicant will be leaving Canada at the end of his study time? In reality, the hope would be to study and then find a job and apply for a work permit. Not sure if that...

    Collecting parental leave EI after 3 year period has passed

    Good point I was just assuming any government payment would be considered "assistance", but it makes sense as the only way to collect EI is by paying into it. Thanks for your reply.
